The Much Begged For Wedding Chair Hanger Tutorial

You asked for it! Here’s a step-by-step guide to making these cool, affordable and green wedding chair hangers…

Other helpful hints:

  • Don’t do this inside, it started to rain and I dragged this project inside. I think I’ll be cleaning up for years to come
  • I used 1" ribbon and that was just right
  • I bought 2 rolls of sod and used just a tiny bit of the second roll. They were $3 each roll
  • I’m joking about using your best steak knives
  • If you cut the foam core first you can use a piece as your template for cutting the sod
  • When you’re sticking the greening pins through the sod into the board, do it on your lawn and not your lap. The pins go STRAIGHT through
  • Buy 1000 times more ribbon than you think and 4000 times more hot glue
  • The sod has to be sort of moist but not wet
  • I made 24 hangers for a grand total of about $40 and the bulk of the cost was the ribbon
